Many provisos which must be followed if young children are not to transmit germs to one another.
doctors; never share another's food; schoolroom; examination; school nurse;
really bad acting; children washing; cod liver oil; boiling dishes; sleeping;
odd shot: child spitting toothpaste into the toilet [rather than the bathroom sink]

Now you know what that white goo is in the toilet!
Very strange and dated film which gives kids ways on how to avoid a cold. Using vwey badly acting kids (at least the kids are better actors then the ADULTS!) the film follows Joan, and his brother, on a typical day. As you can probably tell, Joan is smart, her brother is not. After Joans Mother decides that her kids need to wear snowsuits (!!) on a perfectly nice but chilly day, the kids are off to school. Joan avoids the puddles. Her brother doesn't. Her brother takes a bite from someone else's food, Joan does not.. and so it goes. Pretty soon, when they are in school, Joan's brother's head is bobbing up and down in some indication I guess that he is sneezing. His teacher notices that his feet are wet as well. Off to the Nurses you go! After a thermometer check and discovering his feet are wet (a sure sign, apparently) his nurse who has a GREAT sign in her office that says "Bodies, like buildings, should keep erect" and determines that Joan's bro IS sick. Joan's mom then takes appropiate action. Makes sure he has a separate towel from everyone, boiling his dishes after he eats (!!) and making sure everyone spits into the toilet (why??). Strange and ancient fun from our pals at Coronet. Higjly reccomended!
